Do you really mean what you’re trying to say?
Do you really mean you would go away?
Say it isn’t true, say it’s just a game
Say it isn’t true, things are just the same

How can you and I ever say goodbye?
No, I see your eyes agree with what you say
I could never make you stay

Go, go before you break my heart
Go before I go down on my knees
And beg you ‘please don’t go’

Go, go before the teardrops start
Don’t you know, at moments such as these
It’s better, please, to go

I’d like to make my heart
A prison cell for you to stay
To stay

Didn’t we have fun? Wasn’t it a song?
Didn’t we have fun? Where did I go wrong?
Did I try too hard? Did I make mistakes?
Surely they’re the kind every lover makes

Is it all a dream? Will I wake up soon?
How can I face the lonely years without you?
Don’t you know I love you so?

Go, go before you break my heart
Go before I go down on my knees
And beg you ‘please don’t go’

Go, go before the teardrops start
Don’t you know, at moments such as these
It’s better, please, to go

I’d like to hide my foolish pride
Until you walk away

Go (Go before I lose my mind)
(Go before I find I’d rather die than ever let you go)
Go, go

  • BEAUTIFUL SONG AND BEAUTIFUL SINGER!!!!

  • Ross says:

    Amazing song, she’s a beautiful voice. I went looking for it there and found that the Italian version of the song came second to ABBA in the 1974 Eurovision. Got a translation of the Italian version and it’s a straight love song where she says “yes” instead of “go”. Think the music actually suits the english words much better.
